Book review: "Against the Grain" by Richard Manning

Richard Manning doesn't have the historical knowledge of a Jared Diamond, but still does a good job at giving us a broad overview of the anthropological impact of agriculture - proving us over and over that life was a lot better BEFORE agriculture, when people were living in nomadic tribes of hunter-gatherers. I am deeply convinced of that. "Civilization" sucks, and it's destroying the Earth - fast.
